Ric Flair pays tribute to Dusty Rhodes

One of Rhodes’ legendary opponents, fellow WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, gave a statement to TMZ Sports after Rhodes was announced dead.

The statement was issued through Flair’s agents at Legacy Talent and Entertainment.

“Today I lost one of my greatest opponents and greatest friends. He was the definition of heart and soul and I’m honored to have shared the ring with him countless times,” Flair said.

“He became the ‘American Dream’ because wrestling needed a hero they could respect, and he was the man for the job. Dusty Rhodes, I will miss you my mentor and friend.”

Flair and Rhodes had one of the best wrestling feuds in the history of the sport and he defeated Flair for the NWA title. Their feud continued in WCW with the 4 Horsemen as well.
